Thanks guys. The first solution with the gsub / lapply works perfectly. The
solution using substrings would work if the times were in a consistent
format, but without the leading zeros and with some parts of the string
absent completely it would need some extra logic to apply. I need something
to automate over a data set with a million or so time points in it.
